Don’t forget to stop by the Nutcracker Suite for a tour of the DeGolyer House!

3. A Kissing Photobooth

The holiday season has a way of heightening romance. And the Arboretum sure helps out with it’s kissing photobooth! Merry Kissmas!

4. The 12 Days of Christmas- gazebo style

The 12 Days of Christmas gazebos are definitely the highlight of the Arboretum come wintertime. From the end of November until early January you can check out the Arboretum’s rendition of the famous song.

You’ll find depictions of each “day” listed in the song, like this one featuring four calling birds. Each gazebo represents a different day, and you can make a game of traveling to each gazebo.

5. Carolers in the park

Don’t be surprised if you hear beautiful singing as you wander throughout the park. There are often free concerts going on!

Don’t forget to go at nighttime for some truly romantic lighting. The Arboretum extends its normal hours for a light show at night. The whole park gets lit up with over 500,000 lights, making for some Christmas magic. The only thing is it does cost a bit extra, even for members.
